Dear Angie, working at the camp is very tiring and hard. I have been struggling to keep up with all the drill work. If I don't complete everything to the camp leaders expectations, I will be severely punished. Punishments include wearing a barrel around me that says I did something wrong, whipping, etc. Sounds pretty fun right, no.  So I just wanted to let you know that.

Dear friend, at camp me and my friends always gamble our money. This is how we have fun and pass time. My favorite food is berries mixed together. I grab a bunch of wild berries from trees, put them in a bowl, and smash them all together with my hands. Then I share it with friends.

At the army camp lots of fellow men had diseases. The most common one was gangrene. It was a disease caused by fighting in war. It is a skin disease where your skin tissue falls off. There were no cures you just ad to let your skin grow back.

I came home because my time was up. When I got home I was so glad to see all the beautiful trees and other nature. I was very glad to see my family too. Everything was so much more positive. It was great.
